Brazilian airframer Embraer upholds its position that the lawsuit of Air Astana over quality issues with its five E190-E2s is unfounded and that any obligation to pay financial compensation to the airline is out of the question. Embraer restates its position in a so-called motion to dismiss that it presented in late June to the Supreme Court of the State of New York, which has scheduled a hearing on this document on September 7. Embraer: ‘Air Astana is contradicting its own allegations’.
As reported before on AirInsight, the dispute between the airline from Kazakhstan and Embraer continues behind the scenes. Parties had until mid-July to exchange legal documents after procedural issues delayed this for most of the past months.
